Ooh, I haven’t been as excited about a foundation in living memory .. Let’s face it, it’s generally not the sexiest of products; it’s the boring bit before you get on to the proper, fun, face-painting stage of make-up. But I have to say, Chanel’s latest addition to its family of foundations is worth getting excited about. Don’t be put off by its name, Perfection Lumiere Velvet (£33), which might suggest that it’s the foundation equivalent of the matte Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks. This liquid base actually provides natural-looking, lasting and thorough coverage and comes in a good range of shades, with fair skins well catered for. Oh, and I love its French name. Allez-y – say it: “flouteur”.. Tres sexy, non?!
